Jeffrey Rutzky has always had a passion for arts and crafts, and has integrated them with his desktop publishing skills to create unique works of art. He is also the author and designer of several papercraft books, including Kirigami Kit, TearPlanes, Jewelgami, and Bugagmi. Rutzky works as an artist and graphic designer in New York City. Chris K. Palmer is a professional artist who has been designing and folding origami since childhood. In Granada, Spain, he was inspired by the mosaic tilings of the Alhambra. Persistent effort and study of the Japanese hira-ori technique led Palmer to make the leap from paper folding to Shadowfolds. Palmer has taught art and architecture at the Illinois Institute of Technology and the University of Colorado at Boulder. He now resides in California.
